(ITS#5082) olcPasswordHash: Scheme not available

Full_Name: Mustafa A. Hashmi
Version: 2.3.30
OS: Debian Etch (4.0)
Submission from: (NULL) (

When slapd is initialized to read configuration via cn=config (-F
/path/to/slapd.d), configuration directives are read before modules are loaded.
This can result in slapd exiting when a configuration option, provided by a
specific module, is found before the module is loaded.

As an example: the directive password-hash {K5KEY} results in slapd existing
with the following message: 

olcPasswordHash: value #0: <olcPasswordHash> scheme not available ({K5KEY})
olcPasswordHash: value #0: <olcPasswordHash> no valid hashes found
config error processing cn=config: <olcPasswordHash> no valid hashes found

The smbk5pwd module is loaded at a later stage during the initialization

Please note: If cn=config.ldif is edited and the option removed, slapd will
start normally and allow the option to be added at runtime.
